Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has fired a warning to Paul Pogba that no one is bigger than the club.
This is as the war of words between the Norwegian manager and the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola rumbles on.
Solskjaer, who yesterday completed two years in charge of the Red devils, said, “I would just not stand for anyone thinking that he is bigger than Manchester United. No one is. Absolutely no one and Paul knows this. It is not only for Paul. It is for all of us.”
The controversial Raiola angered the United manager earlier this month by saying it was time Pogba left the theatre of dreams.
“Paul was here as a kid in the Under-18s. We signed him early on and he comes with the Manchester United DNA in him,” Solskjaer told a press conference ahead of United’s game with Leeds.
“He knows what we are about. United is about being in a team and Paul has always been an ambitious boy who loves playing football.
“He trains well, he never refuses to train or play, he has a good attitude. “In fact, I rarely speak to agents. I want players who can handle life as well. You can’t just go through agents.”

After last week’s Manchester derby, Pogba took to social media to hit out at the stick he was getting for Raiola’s comments about his future.
He wrote: “I’ve always fought and will always fight for Manchester United, my team-mates and the fans. All has been clear between the club and myself and that will never change.
“When you don’t know what’s going on inside, don’t talk.”
